Double Leaning Wall Shelf - This set of ladder shelves comes in a twin design for people that need to store more belongings, but like the look of the ladder shelf. It has a total of 12 display shelves and each of them can withstand up to 65lbs, so it is very durable; this set is not a freestanding unit, it has to be bolted to the wall. It has been constructed from oak veneer with a sleek coffee colored finish, which would look great in any living room or bedroom. Because of its size, this particular piece of furniture will cost about $170 each, which is actually not too bad considering its size.
Winsome Wood Bailey Shelving Unit - This bookcase has a matte black finish and made from solid wood frame and composite wood shelves. It has an overall depth of 14 inches which provides ample space for big books and other collectible and because of its low rails at the back and sides, books are prevented from tumbling down.
If this is the first time you've heard of ladder shelves, they are simply a vertical row of shelves that look like an A-Ladder, with a few slight changes. Most of the time they come in 5 tier heights, though there are also a few brands that make them higher, the top most shelf will be the smallest and each shelf below will gradually get larger similar to a staircase formation. You will find a variety of different styles in your local home depot; the two main varieties are the 'Freestanding' and 'leaning' types. The freestanding ladder shelf has back support so that it can be placed in any space and remains standing on its own. Alternatively the leaning shelf needs to be bolted to a wall in order to stay upright. Each has its own benefits, the freestanding one can be placed anywhere in your house, but there is a risk of it falling over; the leaning shelf has the extra support of the wall so it can support much heavier weights.
